Just a while back, I mentioned Alex Jones in a post about NDAA legislation.
Turns out the vote was indeed a factual event, even though I still debate and contest the alleged ramifications. Anhyoo, my first introduction to Jones was through various 9/11 conspiracy theories. It was an inside job, there were far more nefarious and Luciferian forces at work, so on and so forth. One of the aspects of 9/11 that Jones along with several other researchers have pointed out is the fact that Anwar al-Awlaki seemed awfully snuggly with the U.S. government even while the Feds were calling him the most wanted man in the world after Osama bin Laden. In fact, an FBI agent who interviewed al-Awlaki after the 9/11 attacks said that no one knew the story and details behind 9/11 better than al-Awlaki. This casts a bit more shadow on the fact that al-Awlaki was killed by a U.S. Reaper drone last September. Combining that with my personal belief that no plane ever struck the Pentagon on 9/11, I thought that I should head over to Jones' site and maybe even listen in on a bit of his radio program.
Seems that Jones' current preaching is that we are facing a military takeover of our nation. The approval of NDAA was just the beginning. Next will come total censorship of the Internet and then World War III. As war breaks out, Obama will then suspend the constitution and rule by decree. Hmmm. Seems to me I heard the same thing a few years back, only it wasn't from Alex Jones and it was about George W. Bush. Scrolling along through his site, I saw that Jones claims "Proof! The Feds did the Oklahoma City bombing!" Also, he has a review of the magnificent film, A Clockwork Orange, which he calls a portrayal of "a degenerate society that the nanny government tries to literally reprogram in order to control it." An apt, even if slightly skewed summary. I'm going to check out the entire review when I'm done here on the blog.
Then it hit me. I have seen Alex Jones before. It was on an episode of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura. Jones brought Jesse "The Body" to the edge of a CDC compound in order to show the Governor that the evil Fed agency was stockpiling caskets. What could they possibly have in mind? You can imagine what Jones and Ventura thought, it was related to plans of FEMA concentration camps and martial law. Personally, I think that the CDC is exercising due diligence in preparing for...God forbid...an epidemic that would result in mass fatalities. But that's just me.
I think that every presidential administration has its pockets of opponents who believe that the man in charge is orchestrating a master plan to subjugate the American people. I can't say that they're wrong. Tons of things go on without our knowledge, the tale of 9/11 being only one cog in a vaster machine. No, I don't believe that we were told the entire story of 9/11 and doubt that we will ever know the full truth (again, no plane ever hit the Pentagon.) Is it to the ends that Alex Jones is alleging? I can't say that he's wrong.
Even though I kinda think that he is.
